COVID-19 UPDATE headspace Bunbury/Busselton Satellite

26 Mar 2020

headspace is here to support the mental health of young people and we understand that COVID-19 is potentially creating feelings of uncertainty within the community.

headspace Bunbury and Busselton Satellite are closely monitoring developments with COVID-19, and reminds members of the community to take care during this time.

To reduce risk and ensure safety of the centre and the community, headspace Bunbury and Busselton Satellite have moved to an online and telephone service. This will mean that our clinicians and intake team will be providing support over the phone to clients and their families. This will be in place from Monday the 23rd of March 2020. During this time we will be suspending our GP service.

Young people and their families may still contact the headspace centres on (08) 6164 0680 (option 1 for Bunbury and option 2 for Busselton). This also includes new or existing clients to our service.

Supporting young people in challenging times is crucial and headspace is dedicated to ensuring that those who need it can access help.

We will continue to closely monitor the rapidly changing landscape in relation to COVID-19, and will keep the community informed about any changes in capacity. Our priorities remain our ability to maintain access to services for young people and family and friends, and also the wellbeing of our staff and the local community. We will be working to maintain service continuity and access throughout this time.

For young people potentially experience feelings of stress related to COVID-19, headspace has developed information which might be helpful to manage any changes to daily life as a result of containment measures.
